In this study we surveyed 568 IT practitioners and 563 non-IT business managers. An important finding of the study is that there has been virtually no improvement in the practices of non-IT business managers to secure their laptops. Consistent with the earlier study, a high percentage of employees we surveyed in non-IT business functions (referred to as business managers in this report) are not taking such simple precautionary steps as using complex passwords, not sharing passwords, using a privacy shield, keeping their laptop physically safe when traveling or locking their laptop to protect sensitive and confidential data.
